MicroV asked
How might we encourage more volunteering amongst professionals leveraging their free time, interests, and their current location?
Working professionals could not volunteer as much as they want to because they do not have the time or energy to dedicate hours searching for the right opportunity. Data shows that younger people volunteer significantly less than the older population. Our research suggests that this is because it's not easy to find the right activity, at the right place, and at the right time. Our mobile platform Micro V recommends a curated list of events, each lasting up to 2 hours, to users based on their interests, time and location preferences. We use a tinder like interface that provides users with a fun and easy experience. Now, professionals can spend less time looking and more time acting.
